Essendon Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Acupuncturist in Essendon.
Are you looking for a professional acupuncture treatment in Essendon? Then we know we can help you.
Located in Moonee Ponds Qi Medicine is amazingly close by, providing high level healthcare treatments from our wonderful team.
Our registered therapists are experts in several areas of interest including the following:
Acupuncture in Fertility and IVF
Our approach to fertility and IVF is natural through the Fertile Life Method ©, developed by Dr. Kirsten Wolfe and most of our therapists are professionally trained to use this method.
The Fertile Life Method is a holistic and thorough method which helps our doctors to understand the cause of delayed pregnancies and what you can do to help.
We are careful with our approach, using a 150 point check to determine what might be causing infertility. From an intensive initial consultation, we spend an extended amount of time discussing with you our findings, and what we can do to help overcome your fertility challenges. We may seem a bit obsessive in some areas, but with so much at stake, we don’t like to cut corners!
Our team of aupuncturists co-operates closely with your gynecologist, IVF specialist, GP and any other health professional helping you along your journey, to ensure the best outcomes for you. We definitely believe each area of medicine has something valuable to offer you on your fertility journey.
Sadly, there is a predicted decrease in fertility rates in Essendon among women. We hope to change this trend and be a part of the success stories of many couples hoping to conceive.

Our experts at Qi Medicine acupuncture collaborate with Platform 7 Physiotherapy and Pilates to ensure that pregnant mothers stay strong and fit through pre and post labour.
Acupuncture for endometriosis pain
Endometriosis is a medical condition in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus (the endometrium) grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis can cause great discomfort and pain. In addition, endometriosis may impede blastocyst implantation, which can cause fertility issues for women.
According to the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, endometriosis affects one in ten women. The cause of endometriosis is yet to be discovered; however, endometriosis has been linked to genetics. That is, if your mother or any female family members of yours have it, there is a likelihood that you may also develop it.
There are many options to treat endometriosis. The Royal Women’s Hospital website suggests that Chinese medicine may be useful in the treatment of endometriosis pain. What this means is that many women dealing with endometriosis pain could benefit from acupuncture.
At Qi Medicine, you will be attended to by professionally trained and registered Chinese medicine doctors who can help you relieve endometriosis pain with our gentle yet effective acupuncture pain relief techniques.
One great way we recommend to manage your endometriosis pain is with a castor oil pack.
Watch our video on how to make your own castor oil pack here.

Cosmetic acupuncture and skin needling
Healthy skin is an indicator of a healthy lifestyle. At Qi Medicine, cosmetic acupuncture and skin needling sessions are two ways we use to help people achieve healthy aging, without the severe side effects of some skin and facial treatments.
The effects of our targeted treatments are multi-layered.
On the one hand, sessions act directly on the muscles and tendons at the muscle layer of the face, and directly stimulates the neurons of the face. Treatment can dramatically influence your facial expression and tightness, which could literally change how you look.
Skin needling, on the other hand, boosts collagen and cellular turnover on the top skin layer, encouraging the body to clean up old damage and scar tissue (especially from acne) that may not have been dealt with in the past.
Facial rejuvenation at our clinic near Essendon may also help reduce stress and pain in the body and assist deep relaxation.

Acupuncture for back pain and sciatica
When people hear the word acupuncture, what comes to mind for most is pain relief.
Yes, acupuncture may help to alleviate your sciatica, lower back, neck and other muscle or joint pain for that matter!
According to a report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 16% of Australians complain of back pain. Our goal at Qi Medicine acupuncture is to offer treatment to everyone in Essendon North and Essendon West with the option of acupuncture to relieve back pain.
Online, the team at Better Health channel Victoria also suggested that acupuncture is ‘moderately helpful in a wide range of conditions, particularly those which involve pain.’
Our team work alongside local GP’s and other allied health practitioners, to boost your health outcomes. Our allied health partners include; Beyond Health and Fitness in Pascoe Vale Rd Moonee Ponds, who provide Osteopathy and Yoga services to help combat back pain and sciatica and Dr. Glenn Pereira in Pascoe Vale Rd, to help you manage your back pain more effectively.
